Onry, the last 3 letters of the model number is missing. If this is an electric dryer the thermal fuse may be open. On electric dryers if the fuse is open the motor won't run. On gas, the motor will run but will not heat. There are two thermal fuses on the electric model. One on the front of the blower housing and the other on the element enclosure. Check the one on the blower housing first. You will need to remove the door by removing the 4 screws that hold the door hinge and spacers on the other side. Lift up on the door and pull out. Now the front panel will pull out and the blower cover will be visable. If this is a gas dryer we'll have to look elsewhere. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: Tumble Dryer won't start
assuming what you say you checked is correct and working then the next place to look is the start relay, located behind the front timer control panel, this sis more often than not a cubed shape box made of clear plastic with about 6 spade connectors on it, look for burn marks inside it, replace if looks damaged, do not attempt to bypass or short out to test, as you will blow the timer or and control circuit board and cause extensive damage

It certainly sounds like you are not getting a flame established in your dryer. That can be one of several components such as a non-resettable thermal fuse, gas valve assembly or control relay to that gas valve assembly. Unless you are well versed on how to work on these kinds of components, I suggest you just call in an appliance tech or.. let me know if you want to attempt diagnosing and repairing it yourself. Be advised that there are elements of danger in so doing. Let me know how you want to procede on this and I'd be happy to walk you thru it..

There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem
